Kings Highway to re-open today

By johnboy - 26 April 2012 23


The ABC brings word that the long awaited re-opening of the Kings Highway, after the Pooh Corner landlside, is going to happen this afternoon.

This will no doubt be a relief to the whole regional economy and coast house owners throughout the region.

Also, while nervous nellies in Government like to put a clarifying “bear” into “Pooh Bear Corner” we feel that A.A. Milne’s original would be all the worse for this preventative bowdlerism. You’re smart enough to know we’re talking about a fictional bear.

UPDATE 26/04/12 09:27: For those who’ve been mislead by the Canberra Times the RTA confirms the midday today opening.

The RTA have produced a bunch of photos showing the work they’ve been doing which we thought deserving of repeating here:

They’re closing it again on 23rd May (next week) to blow up a giant boulder. It’ll be all day, 6am to midnight. Info here:

Are you serious? Araluen as a viable cost effective alternative? You obviously haven’t been through there or if you have you were too busy nervously clutching the steering wheel of your beige Camry to notice the terrain that would need to be overcome.

So the highway gets closed for a couple of days a year. Venice floods every winter and the shopkeepers in St Marks Square cope with an ocean that’s a foot higher than their floor without whining. Dunno why you’d want to go to Batemans Bay anyway. ‘Tis a bit of a hole.
